Currently in the Driver WRC Standings, Marcus Gronholm is leading with 31 points, he is followed by, in second place, Gilles Panizzi with 20 points, and right behind Gilles is Richard Burns (last year's WRC Driver's Champion) with 19 points. Harri Rovanpera is currently sitting in Fifth Place on the standings, with 9 points.
It is quite obvious that the Peugeot
team is doing extremely well this year.
Currently, in Manufacturer's Points, Peugeot has 68. The closest teams to that are Ford and Subaru, who each currently have 27 points in the standings.
